Rouge Bunny Rouge Solstice Halcyon Eye Shadow Swatches and Review

Rouge Bunny Rouge is a niche cosmetic company that is exclusive to Zuneta will ship worldwide and makes these once unattainable brands accessible to everyone. I was so pleased to own a bit of RBR from this whimsical company and I have definitely "fallen down the rabbit hole"...

Here is more information from the company's website "Easily the most imaginative, inspirational and addictive brand we've come across! The formulas are out of this world and we can't get enough of the enchanting product descriptions. Be warned, once you fall down the rabbit hole and try this brand there is no going back..."

I think Solstice Halcyon should be a staple in every woman's cosmetic wardrobe. I don't see any flaws with Solstice, in fact, the color is beautiful.  It can be worn alone for a more natural look, or paired with a darker color blended in the crease can be more dramatic. The company boasts that it is long lasting and  can last 10 hours when worn wet! I cannot attest to that but I'm happy if creasing doesn't happen after a few hours, I'd be pleased with 8! It blends very well and does not just sit on the eye lid but merges well with other shadows.

Solstice Halcyon is part of their 'when the birds are singing collection' they describe it as a semi-matte mauve beige. This particular shadow is a pleasure to blend and the texture is velvety smooth. Call me crazy but on my screen it is pulling out a peach color that on my arm and in the pan I just don't see. As usual, it is hard to capture the beauty of all this makeup on a computer screen.

I'm going to let the pictures do the rest of the talking since a picture is worth a 1,000 words after all. I encourage you to check out Rouge Bunny's website when you have a spare moment.

This one shadow has enchanted me greatly and I am already planning my next Rouge Bunny Rouge purchase! I mentioned that I may have just found my holy grail eye shadow here but this definitely needs to be added to this list!

All pictures were taken in direct sunlight. I love that that finely milled sparkles to this shadow appear.

With tax the shadow retails for $34.12 USD and is approximately 21£ and you get 2.4 g. worth of product.

Isn't Solstice Halcyon yummy? Will you be purchasing this, if you do not already own it?
